Merry Christmas "Quilt Show"

Merry Christmas to you all and yes I know it's a little early for that but not if you are going to be participating in Quilting Tutorials blog Quilt Show.
I would like to tell you about my entry. I first seen this book when on my anniversary trip, I went to a quilt shop near where we were staying and fell in love with it.

I have a passion for applique and knew I had to make this one. 
I do not believe this quilt is represented as a Chistmas quilt but the colors to me just scream Christmas.
So here is mine, it is a large quilt (fits my king size bed) which is hand appliqued, machine pieced and hand quilted.

I appologize for my picture, the quilt stand I have is missing a piece and I was unable to use it. So it's a floor shot.






It's now time to vote for Viewer's Choice.  You will need to go here and leave a comment with your favorite quilt ( hopefully mine # 62). Voting takes place on this weekend, Dec 1 &2. ( was wrong have Monday the 3 rd to vote too) There are so many entries for you to check out. Plus, if you leave a comment, you could even win a prize!


That you very much for taking time to visit.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
